King Richard Armitage Week: Richard III Project Slogan Poll

To celebrate Richard Armitage’s 40th birthday and to commemorate the anniversary of Richard III’s death, this blog is participating in a weeklong series of RA blog events for the Richard III for Richard Armitage!/King Richard Armitage project (sign the petitionjoin the Facebook group). Enjoy the fun!

Let’s play ad agency (Mad Men time!) and come up with ad campaign slogans for the Richard III project.

Let’s look at the writing strategies used to create ad taglines for The Tudors.

  • Sex. Intrigue. Excess. Treachery. Power. Obsession. Murder. – List
  • It’s Good to Be King. – Existing catchphrase
  • King Takes All. – Wordplay on double meaning of king
  • Lover. Warrior. Rebel. King. Prepare for reign. – List with a play on words
Here are a few I have come up with—let’s have a poll!

No bots allowed. 😉

Some Background

  • Richard III’s motto was “Loyalty binds me.”
  • He was an advocate for less fortunate citizens, improving the economic conditions of northern England for commoners, and introducing the bail system and a court for those who could not afford legal representation.

What are your slogan ideas? Channel your inner Peggy Olson or Don Draper and post them in the comments section.

Thanks for participating!

  1. Oh, what funny idea to promote King Richard III. For his people he was a good king, it is really undeserved to have such a continuing bad image because of some unexplainable deaths during his reign ;o). Other kings have ‘explained’ death sentences on their conscience and are well remembered.
    My rather un-marketing like suggestions to promote him are:
    “The good king maligned” or
    “I fought for my people, not for my reputation”
    I like your suggestions very much, so the decision to chose one was hard to make. Thank you!!!

    • Thanks for participating! 🙂 That is a smart tactic to point to how the real history has been buried.

  2. Huh, I voted for like the least popular one. (Team Plantagenet)

    You’ll be surprised how much you like me?
    My kingdom’s worth a lot more than a horse?

    • I do have a fondness for that one, so I’m pleased someone liked it!

      Haha—nice ones. I think more funny ones are in order –

      – Better Than The Tudors.

      – Excuse me: Shakespeare is categorized in the fiction section.

      – Loyalty is Back. Hot Loyalty.
